This lecture deals with the science and metaphysics of proportionality, whereby, through meditation and the play of differences, unity is brought into multiplicity and the universe is made One. Arithmetic, geometric, and harmonic proportions and progressions are introduced, and with them ideas of inversion, alternation, and crossing are developed. Finally, the metaphysical background is explored, particularly with reference to the Acts of John. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
